"Love Is Like Oxygen" is a Freebass cover song, released by Orange Records in January 1998.

About the song[]

The song was originally released as a single by the British glam rock band Sweet in 1978, which was taken from their album Level Headed and was the band's last UK, USA and German Top 10 hit record.

"Love Is Like Oxygen" was recorded by Freebass in July 1997 and released to UK radio stations in early November, with the planned release date later that month. But because of very little radio play, the single was pushed back and eventually issued in January 1998. In January the single was released in the UK and was placed in the "UK Music Week" top ten chart. During January 1998 Freebass broke up and "Love Is Like Oxygen" was the only single released by the band. The CD was presented in a tin stickered box.

Time on my side

I got it all

I've heard that pride

Always comes before a fall

There's a rumour goin' round the town

That you don't want me around

I can't shake off my city blues

Everyway I turn I lose


Love is like oxygen

You get too much you get too high

Not enough and you're gonna die

Love gets you high

Time is no healer

When you're not there

Lonely fever

Sad words in the air

Some things are better left unsaid

I'm gonna spend my days in bed

I'll walk the streets at night

To be hidden by the city lights city lights
